Dishcloth Free Knitting Patterns or Blanket Blocks: B sides!

More Dishcloth Free Knitting Patterns or Blanket Blocks

When I published my DIAMONDS square I promised I will be sharing the pattern for the B side, especially because beginners get confused when reversing patterns. I know I did when I started knitting!

So, here it is! I also included the pattern for the B side of INTO THE FOREST. And, as one of the ladies in my Ravelry group suggested: wouldn’t that be a great pattern to make Christmas gifts?

Both patterns are below. And, since they’re related to my 52 SQUARE PICKUP KAL, I also included a PDF file for you to download, at the end of each one.

Enjoy you day, and your knitting!

ALERCES Cowl Knitting Pattern

ALERCES cowl knitting pattern free cowl knitting pattern ohlalana ALERCES neckwarmer

Alerceis the name of a tall tree species native to the Andes region and also a reference to my most beloved National Park in Argentina: Los Alerces. I love forests, mountains and lakes, and therefore Los Alerces National Park is a paradise to me!

My ALERCES cowl is knitted in the round.

You can work it with bulky yarn to make it stiff (as I did), which will make it perfect for winter nights. It will cover you up to the nose like a shield! Look:

It has some “Mad hatter hat” look, isn’t it?

Of course, you can also make it using aran or worsted yarn if you prefer your cowl to have more drape 😉

Skill level: intermediate (because of the cabled pattern)

The entire pattern is below.

You can also purchase the pattern in a high quality PDF file for $2 HERE or in my Etsy Shop HERE ($2.50).

I hope you like it 🙂

MORSE knitting pattern: Block 30 of 52 Square Pickup

MORSE stitch knitting pattern 52 SQUARE PICKUP knitted blanket MORSE knitting pattern OhLaLana dishcloth free pattern

MORSE knitting pattern

Hello,

I looked my last blocks and noticed that somehow they were getting more and more complicated. So I decided it was time for another easy pattern, but I didn’t want it to be boring!

So here’s what I came up with: a very easy block with a hidden message in Morse code. I’m sure you’ll like the repeating word 😉 Can you guess what is written in my MORSE block?

Morse code is a great way to hide little messages into your knitting. For instance, if you’re making this blanket for your significant other you could include a “please, do not snore” message in it. You can also decide when (and if!) to share the key to find it.

Another fun idea, if you have kids, is to knit several dishcloths with different messages and save them for a rainy day. I’m sure they’ll have fun deciphering the words, or discovering their names in code.

Happy knitting. And deciphering!

HONEYCOMB patterns (4 versions): Block 27 of 52SP

PATTERN 27: HONEYCOMB

I had a lot of fun thinking about this pattern, and came up with 4 versions. A and B are very similar, but in B the cells are bigger than the cells in A. I think I will revise version C later, because I’m not entirely happy with the result. And D… I have to finish knitting it! My knitting seems to be always a work in progress…

PATTERN 26: LITTLE HERRINGBONE

Hello!

Remember that when I published block 14 I told you I named it “BIG” Herringbone because I intended to make another one? Well, here it is!

Next week’s block will be called HONEYCOMB and is a special request of one of my patrons. I never tried to design a honeycomb stitch pattern for beginners and I thought it was a brilliant idea! 

Enjoy your knitting,

ALPHABET Series: Z DISHCLOTH

After months of work, today marks the end of another project: my Alphabet Series. Now even Diego de la Vega can have his monogrammed blanket (you know who he is, don’t you?).

Below you can find the pattern for Z letter and the option to buy a PDF file containing all the patterns of this series for $5. If you can do it, I’ll appreciate your help to finance my next projects. But if you can’t, please don’t worry! Just make sure to tell people where did you get the patterns if they ask. That’s a great help for me too 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this project, and I’ll see you on the next one!

Hugs to you,

Ceci

PS: you won’t have to wait too much, I’ll be posting the next pattern of my 52 Square Pickup tomorrow! 😛

DIAMONDS pattern: Block 25 of 52 Square Pickup

PATTERN 25: DIAMONDS

Hello! I just got back home, after a very boring day to renew my driver’s license (yawn!). It’s still cloudy and rainy here and I don’t think I’ll have enough good light later to take photos of the finished square.

So… Can we knit this one together?

I’m sharing here the pattern and some photos of my WIP (I’ll change them once I take photos of the finished block 🙂 )

The new pattern (block 25) is called DIAMONDS, and I think it looks very good from both sides. This is how it looks from the back:

I’ll be making another one with the reverse stocking st backgroud to add to my squares pile. If you’re a beginner and don’t know how to reverse the pattern, don’t worry! I’ll share it in the next few days.

For the time being, I’ll get back to knit my diamonds!

xo,

Ceci

PS: this block is a bit difficult, with 20 different rows. I’m sharing also a downloadable file with the control table I always make for my Patreon supporters. You can use the control table to check your progress through the pattern repeats. And those intructions include the border stitches (k4).

SMILEY Dishcloth or Blanket Block

SMILEY dishcloth knitting pattern SMILEY knitting OhLaLana!

SMILEY DISHCLOTH OR BLANKET BLOCK

I designed my SMILEY Dishcloth pattern (or Blanket Block) as a fun addition to my Alphabet Blanket. It has the same amount of sts and rows as any other square of the Alphabet Series and 52 Square Pickup ones. Of course, you can also use them as dishcloth / washcloth, or incorporate the patterns in any other project you like.

I think it could be also a fun gift to help kids (and adults!) go through their cleaning chores with a smile 🙂
